Razorback Basketball 2016-2017
« on: November 12, 2016, 09:49:30 am »
Opened last night with an ugly win over Fort Wayne (who's projected to win the Summit League). Glad we weren't upset, but we need to be better. Could be a fun year

I remember when he was a SR at PV playing at Jonesboro in the state tournament, he was a skinny kid, haha, but was a player. I had a big PV supporter sitting behind me and I kept asking him where he would play? I don't think he had the grades out of high school and that was the reason he went the JUCO route, it looks like he filled out some.

Thing is, 13,000 tickets were sold for the game and only 4,000 showed up, which was the second smallest crowd at BWA.

My new favorite coach: http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2016/nov/14/southern-illinoiss-barry-hinson-issues-arkansas-fa/

He absolutely blasted the fan base.  I'm honestly not sure what his past connection to Arkansas is, but I found it very odd that an opposing coach would call out a fan base like that. 

Not saying I didn't enjoy it a little bit though.  ;D

Basketball doesn't break down by division, but we're picked fifth in the conference. Second among West teams behind A&M

This is easily a sweet sixteen team if they can gel together and get some more chemistry together. Macon and Barford are a better combo than madden and bell ever were even though I liked them! Kingsley and Hannahs will most definetly be there and Thomas is much improved 4 guy than Miles was, Thompson Beard and Watkins are reliable off the bench! Jones the freshman look impressive last night! And Bailey and Cook will help! Gonna be a fun year I just now knew about this thread! I love Razorback basketball!! Definetly deserve a better crowd!

We been so bad since Nolan left it going to take a SEC title and several good tourney runs to get it back . In the early 1990's you could not get a ticket and after the NC I had friends who took off early on Mondays to go to the hill and would come in late Tuesdays.

But not anymore. Plus more games are TV know than then, Maybe that NWA crowd will get back to going again.

Last night was his first action, he had a knee injury for a couple of weeks and they held him out of the opener. What little they showed from Itay proved he wasn't a Doobie, haha.

I think a lot of that has to do with how we fair in our three tough road games in non conferences against Oklahoma State, Texas, and Minnesota. Texas is in Houston so you can pretty much chalk that up as a road game for us. If we only win 1 of those games I think we would have to go minimum 12-6 in the SEC and maybe even 13-5. If we win 2 out of 3 of those road non conference games I think even an 11-7 SEC record may do the trick if you have 2 solid out of conference wins on the road in your pocket. We have to win a game at the SEC tournament too. The way the schedule fell our home schedule is very easy as our tough non conference games are on the road as well as our 1 game against Kentucky in Lexington. For us to have the season we are expecting as Hog fans we have to go undefeated at Bud Walton or no more than 1 loss at home.

It is not worth a thing because we are only one week into the season but Lunardi  on ESPN came out with his first bracketology and Arkansas is his 2nd team out of the tournament so they think we will be a solid team. It has the SEC with only 3 bids so we definitely need to finish in the top 4 of the SEC to even have a chance at the dance. I couldn't see the SEC having anymore than 5 bids for sure and that would be with a good non conference showing by the SEC as a whole.

3-0 win win win, that was a really really good team, they have all their players back from last year and they had a surprise year last year when it was susposed to be rebuilding, so it's a good win against them! Let's get that W Tuesday @ Minnesota

Dustin Thomas isn't an All-American player, but he's a HUGE upgrade from what we've had at the 4 in the past with Michael Sanchez, Devonta Abron (shortest vertical jump ever), JaCorey Williams and Alandise Harris.

Kentucky is beatable this year, they are so young and they have gotten out rebounding by 4 or 5 in the first 3 games. Just gotta block out and play with our potential

I hope our awful offensive game on Friday gets evened out with some hot shooting on Tuesday.... To win on the road in a tough environment like Minnesota you will have to make some deep balls in numbers.

Make easy lay ups and act like possession of the basketball means something and maybe we might be in this... This is pathetic. I also agree we should be sharing the basketball more but they give it to the other team 1/4 of the time.

Might need to get used to seeing that.  With Anderson bringing in 5 guys next year from the same AAU team, don't be surprised if they play AAU style ball.
